Citizen's Institute on Rural Design
June 21, 2018
This month, the Citizens’ Institute on Rural Design (CIRDTM) team ventures out from the East Coast to the Delta, the Sonoran desert, and the high plains to meet our four 2018 selected communities. This year’s workshops focus on Main Street revitalization, multimodal transportation, and healthy living by design: three distinct topic areas that have proven to be especially relevant to rural towns in the United States.

On November 17, 2015, the White House Rural Council in partnership with Project for Public Spaces and the National Main Street Center, hosted The White House Convening on Rural Placemaking. The convening brought together federal, state and local public sector officials, national non-profit organizations, foundations, and individuals to discuss how federal, state, and philanthropic entities can support and leverage the power of placemaking.
